Giving us a Filmation sub is a brilliant move on Mattel's part, and logically it simply had to happen. There was just no way to fit all those characters into the main line without having it stretch on for another 10 years, and I don't think any of us want that. The quicker the better, I say! A lot of us have been clamoring for figures of these guys for 30 years, so just give them to us already!
And seeing how the sub starts in July and will give us a figure every month, it's pretty safe to assume that we'll get a full 12 figure Filmation sub in 2014 in addition to the regular sub. It's really quite exciting to think about! That would cover almost all of the highly demanded characters, and anything beyond that in 2015 would be pure gravy.
I know TG hinted that this new sub would be dedicated to one-off characters, but let's face it, they're obviously going to stick at least one A-list character in there as bait. I'm predicting that instead of being in the main line, Scorpia will be used to sell the 2014 Filmation sub at SDCC. You heard it here first. It just makes smart business sense to spread heavy hitters across both subs.
